Biology Equality and Diversity Committee

Convenor: Dr Sascha Hooker
Minutes: Biology Equality and Diversity Committee

Athena Swan

An Athena SWAN award recognises a department's commitment to making the department and the university workplace overall a more equal place for all staff.

To make the purpose of the committee more clear to everyone, the Biology Athena SWAN committee has changed its name to the Biology Equality and Diversity Committee.

The Biology Equality and Diversity Committee encourages everyone to participate in improving transparency and fairness at all stages of a scientific career. If you have suggestions for our School Action plan, please contact anyone on the comittee.

The School of Biology has a clear and consistent alignment with the University's Equality and Diversity Inclusion Policy, under which the School has an institutional legal obligation to practice equlity of opportunity throughout its recruitment and selection process.

The University has also established a small fund for the express purpose of supporting employees with child minding or other caring responsibilities associated with attending events as part of their role. Called the Caring Fund, more details, as well as an application, can be found on the University's Carers information page.
